The Voice Battle Rounds continued Monday night as Christina, Adam, Cee Lo and Blake got closer to filling all their spots. It was kind of a meh episode with not a lot of strong battles, but that’s probably because they’re saving the best for last for Tuesday night. Right? Let’s hope. OK, on to the battles.
The Voice Battle Rounds Scorecard
Daniel Rosa vs. Alexis Marceaux singing Adam Lambert’s “Whatya Want From Me”
- Winner: Daniel
- Should’ve Won: Alexis
- The Steal: Not Used. I agree with this. Neither were as good as their initial auditions.
Brandon Mahone vs. Nicole Nelson with Marvin Gay and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”
- Winner: Nicole
- Should’ve Won: Brandon
- The Steal: Not used. I think it’s really sad that Brandon was cut AND didn’t get a steal.
Brian Scartocci vs. Loren Allred singing Lady Antebellum’s “I Need You Now”
- Winner: Loren
- Should’ve Won: Brian
- The Steal: Not Used. I just really liked the single dad and his style. Bummed that he’s out.
Ryan Jirovec vs. Cassadee with Gavin DeGraw’s “Not Over You”
- Winner: Cassadee
- Should’ve Won: Cassadee
- The Steal: Not Used
Joe Kirkland vs. Samuel Mouton with the New Radicals’ “You Get What You Give”
- Winner: Joe
- Should’ve Won: Joe
- The Steal: Not used
Devyn Deloera vs. Marissann singing En Vogue’s “Free Your Mind”
- Winner: Devyn
- Should’ve Won: Marissaann
- The Steal: Used. Blake snatched Marissann up. I don’t really get why. I thought both of their performances were shouty Xtina impersonations.
I usually agree with the coaches’ choices more than I did for this episode. Maybe I was just in a bad mood.
Best Performance of the Night
Now this isn’t my pick of the night (because I didn’t have one really), but this is what the show closed with and what others might argue was the best of the night. So there you go.
